An ytterbium-fiber laser with the self-mode-locking using a saturable absorber based on carbon nanotubes is presented. Original films that contain carbon nanotubes make it possible to generate pulses with a duration of 16 ps and a mean power of up to 10 mW at a wavelength of 1058 nm and a repetition rate of 125 MHz
